Cypriot citizenship

Postby Ashino » Tue Nov 17, 2015 1:15 pm

Hello everyone,

Hope you all doing well

I would really appreciate it if you all could help or guide me in my issue, my story is:

I am a 57 year old disabled widow
My mother, my siblings and my children are all Cypriot
I am not Cypriot, I was denied the Cypriot nationality when I applied in 2004
The reason they reject me because I was born in 1959 (which is before the independence day of Cyprus 1960) from the female side therefore according to Cyprus law I am not eligible
The confusing matter is that the ones born before 1960 from a male side can get the nationality easily also according to Cyprus law

Why the gender discrimination?
What am I suppose to do? Why I was denied my rights just because I was born before 1960 which is not my fault.

I want to be with my family and live with them, please help me what am I suppose to do?

Thanks in advance

Where was your father from?

Are your siblings younger than you? Do they have the same mother and father as you?

It doesn't sound like a gender issue but you need to be clearer.

it is against the law to discriminate against people in cyprus using gender on anything. groc has already been taken to task on this issue regarding refugee status. perhaps this has to go to court too. i am afraid at the banana republic things are not easy.

My father is Jordanian, and my siblings are younger than me and we are all from the same mother
My grandparents are Cypriot, we are not refugees
My mother left larnaca when she was a baby with my grandmother in the 30s
And I was born abroad

Get your self a good lawyer. From what you say you have every right, - your grandparents being Cypriot- to demand your rights.

Both of my children were born abroad, after 1960, their mother was English, both have Cypriot nationality as well as British.
Good luck.

Why would you even need Cypriot citizenship to live with your family? Wouldn't a residence permit be good enough? If I was you I'd ask a lawyer specialising in immigration law for advice.
